Jamie Bamber has been acting professionally for 15 years and is probably best known for playing Lee ‘Apollo” Adama in BATTLESTAR GALACTICA as well as DS MATT Devlin in LAW & ORDER: UK.
His acting career started when his Mum cast him as The Wicked Witch of the West when he was a 5 year old living in Paris and since then he has never stopped through school, university productions at St. Johns College Cambridge where he won a First in French and Italian, and LAMDA.
However all through his childhood his real dream was to play rugby for Ireland. At thirty nine years of age that dream has apparently passed so the new plan is to play golf on the Seniors Tour. In the years that remain till his 50th birthday Jamie hopes to continue to star in engaging TV and cinematic stories while lowering his handicap to scratch (currently 5).
Some of the other productions Jamie has starred in are: Archie Kennedy in HORATIO HORNBLOWER, the BBC’S SCARLET PIMPERNEL, DANIEL DERONDA, ULTIMATE FORCE, PEAK PRACTICE, OUTCASTS and BAND OF BROTHERS where he played Lt Jack Foley.
Jamie theatre roles include Prince Hal in Henry IV i and ii at the Bristol Old Vic and Mephistopheles in Dr. Faustus at the Liverpool Playhouse.
Recently Jamie has been living in LA with his family and recurring on various TV shows including BODY of PROOF, PERCEPTION, HOUSE, CSI: MIAMI, DOLLHOUSE and GHOST WHISPERER.
He has also starred in the French language feature UN JOUR MON PERE VIENDRA and more recently took the title role in JOHN DOE, an Australian movie he hopes will be released next year.
Jamie will be starring in David E. Kelley’s new series MONDAY MORNINGS as Dr Tyler Wilson which will premiere on TNT in the winter 2013.
